Happy February Birthday

Today is my son's birthday.   As I was reading about a friend recovering from surgery yesterday, I was thinking about all the surgeries that my son had to go through early in his life and how brave he was.  If I could have spared him any of that pain, surely I would have but I'm very proud of how he has put all that behind and has grown to be a strong and caring man.  Happy Birthday Chris!

The card that I made for him had lots of texture on it. I splurged a little at Mike's and bought some cork and faux leather papers which I thought might come in handy for masculine cards and I think that it worked.  It didn't photograph very well but the base of the card is black.

Another project that I recently completed was this Winterberry shadow box.  It's all paper.  I found the cut file and was intending to have it made for HWNSNBP for Valentine's Day but the snow storm last Thursday put the kabosh on that - I needed 12 x 12 paper for this so I didn't actually cut it until Valentine's Day and finished putting it together over the weekend.  I really like how both of these projects came out.  I think I might be duplicating them both soon.
